Birch Class



This term we are learning about both Shakespeare (focusing on Macbeth) and the Vikings. In literacy we will be learning to write a detailed 

non-chronological report about William Shakespeare. We will then use the information gathered to create a biographical text. We will finally move on to 

writing powerful image poetry conveying the atmosphere of a scene from Macbeth. We will be researching information about when, why and how the 

Vikings invaded and developing our understanding of their volatile relationships with the Anglo-Saxons and how they managed to coexist. We will explore Norse beliefs and what life and death was like for a Viking. Our DT sessions will complement this as the children will be 

developing/creating and evaluating their own Viking Longships. Furthermore, we will be creating spreadsheets, in ICT, and using formulas to calculate 

the cost of materials needed to create a Longship. 



Have a look at some of the exciting things we have been doing this half term!
